SHA receives the tourism industry’s most prestigious sustainability seal which certifies it as an environmentally friendly company.
SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA, USA, February 25, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — At SHA Wellness Clinic, we understand health not just as the absence of disease, but as a state of complete physical, mental and spiritual well-being in harmony with nature. Respect for the environment is one of our founding values and is present from the very construction of the building, which has been adapted to the typology of the land to minimize the environmental impact. In addition, and always looking for sustainable alternatives, priority has been given to the use of materials and natural resources. So, long before concepts such as energy efficiency, upcycling, carbon footprinting, reef-friendly or conscious consumption became part of our everyday vocabulary, at SHA we were already committed to sustainability.
This is why we are particularly delighted to receive the green globe Certification seal, developed exclusively for the tourism industry, which recognizes companies that apply the global criteria of sustainable tourism in their activities. The Green Globe certificate was conceived during the United Nations Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, and to obtain it, an independent auditor comprehensively evaluates different sections, such as the environmental and social impact, the sustainable management, support for the local community and culture, and the company-employee relationship.
During the certification process, which started in May 2021, it was highly appreciated that 100% of the electricity used at SHA is green and that 99% of the products in the food and beverage area are organic. The promotion of healthy lifestyle habits, focusing on a healthy and balanced diet, is also encouraged by SHA, which offers a large number of vegan and vegetarian options and does not include meat and dairy products, two of the most popular industries. pollutants of the planet.
Caring for our people is also paramount, with benefits such as general nutritional and medical consultations, ongoing training, language courses and work-life balance programs.
Regarding the environment, staff activities include reforestation and nature cleanup in the community. SHA uses energy-saving technologies, has a zero-waste strategy and electric chargers for customer vehicles and promotes electric mobility to employees. SHA has also set up a biodynamic garden for organic products.
Juan Pablo Barassi, Director of Operations at SHA Wellness Clinic, “The complex and unpredictable times we live in have made us think even more about the importance of living in harmony with ourselves and our environment. They have also made us reinforce our commitment to social progress, putting people and the planet at the center Obtaining the Green Globe certificate is a responsibility and a stimulus that confirms that we are going in the right direction, but also a challenge to continue to meet the criteria sustainability in the future.”
The company ensures a high degree of digitalization to facilitate the dissemination of knowledge using multiple platforms, such as healthy cooking classes or the online publication of articles and advice.
In addition, Green Globe constantly monitors and, every two years, repeats the on-site audit to verify that the company has adapted to the new sustainability criteria that may have emerged in recent times.
